The still undefeated Cleveland Cavaliers will attempt to put a stranglehold on yet another series as they resume hostilities against the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals in a showdown set to be staged Friday night at the TD Garden in Boston.

The Cavaliers took a 1-0 lead and reclaimed home court advantage in a wire to wire 117-104 victory over the Celtics on Wednesday night. Obviously, the long rest did the Cavaliers some good after all as they jumped to an early 11-point first quarter lead and never looked back although they did slack off a tad towards the end of the game.

Lebron James keeps playing like a man possessed as he scored 38 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. Even Kevin Love got into the action scoring a career-high 32 points in a playoff game. He added 12 rebounds for good measure. The Cavs didn’t at all appear to look rusty shooting 48.1 percent from the floor.

The Cavaliers also played great defense limiting Isaiah Thomas to just 17 points which was his lowest output in his last four games. It was the Celtics’ first home loss since losing their first two games in the first round against Chicago. For the Cavaliers, this was their 12th consecutive playoff win dating back to last year’s finals against Golden State.

Bovada has the Cavaliers listed as 6½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 219½ according to MyBookie.ag
